What are phones for? If its a secret, you might as well keep them like one. There is no need to attract undue attention unless you are really looking for some
1. Secret campaigns
“We guys are very much aware of what those secret campaigns are all about. The most common ones being the colour details of your underwear on these sites. I really don’t think this will give a good picture of all those people in your list. How can women think we will not get to know. These things are bound to leak out man,” says Brendon D’cruz, a freelance artist.
2. Girlie bonding
“The kind of ‘we really need to catch up’ messages and those exchanging of hearts or those smileys are irritaiting sometimes. How come there is so much love pouring out suddenly? I am sure they can all behave normally rather than behaving like bimbos!” states Heikam Pinku, a self-confessed social networking addict.
3. Decode mania
“There are so many women in my list who post ambiguous status messages that only their best buddies can decipher. And to top it all, that friend will post back an I-know-exactly-what-you-mean kind of comment. I mean if they really want to discuss personal issues why go and broadcast it in the public. What are phones for? If its a secret, you might as well keep them like one. There is no need to attract undue attention unless you are really looking for some,” says Anurag Shukla, a commercial pilot.
4. Picture (too) perfect
So there was a party last night, and girl you looked drop dead gorgeous. “What amuses me the most is why do girls have get their pictures clicked in a variety of poses, angles and outfits? And then of course when they go out on a vacation or something like that. Why be a narcissistic?” shares Romen Singh, a pianist.
5. Attention Seeking Syndrome
What is the most common way to get attention to your profile which has not been getting a lot of action lately? Simple, just write single word posts and voila, there will be good 50 comments and some 20 likes. There is nothing more stupid than a girl posting a sad smiley or a ‘yay’ and herfriends jumping up and saying ‘what happened’ or ‘awww’. Don’t girls ever think that guys never do this and it is for a reason. We do not want to go about splashing our every minute online,” cites Sameer Joshi, a final year student.
